Some good news about bike component manufacturers:

I just purchased a pair of tires for my #1 road bike.

Believe it or not, but the tires are actually as discribed by the manufacturer and the tire's packaging!

The 2 Hutchinson Carbon Comp Air-Light 700-23C tires that I purchased today actually weight 174g each and the width is 23mm just as proclaimed on the packaging.

This IS good news because all the previous tires I have purchased have always weighed more (up to 20g each) and have been wider (up to 2mm) than advertized.

They road fine during thier first ride, I'll let you know how they last.
